The ride up the mnt was nice. Nothing too adventurous but had very pretty views. The meal after the ride was simple yet delicious. The guides are very friendly and knowledgable. No one is in a hurry so you have plenty of time for pictures. I would give this excursion an A!

Eighteen hairpin turns, climbing 1,000 ft in just the first few minutes was just the prelude for a thrilling adventure with speculation views. Everything was so easy and safe with knowledgable, friendly guides that were so willing to take that "great snapshot" for you. While we were on the mountain on our mules Ruth was cooking up a tasty meal... More

Last month, I got the chance to go on the Takshanuk mountain trail with a good friend of mine. The weather had been a bit unpredictable, but on that day, it was perfect. We took a short ferry ride from Skagway to Haines, and from there took a bus ride up to the trail itself. Our bus driver and guide... More

We had a wonderful time riding up the mountain. The views were outstanding and very beautiful. The guides were knowledgeable and very careful with our safety. The mules were easy to handle, and the people we met were so interesting. They fed us a great halibut meal on the way back down the mountain. I hated to have the trip... More

This was the second time that we have taken this excursion from our Cruise ship. Do I need to say that we were extremely impressed the first time so we went back. Unfortunately the weather on the second trip did not cooperate, so we were the only ones that knew what the rest of the group was missing. Some of... More

One of our favorite Excursion on our 7 days Alaska Cruise. Riding the 4x4 on the Takshanuk trail would have been enough with its sheer beauty and amazing views, but they top it off with amazing guides which were on hand whether to answer any questions on the area or to take those elusive family pictures. A bus picked us... More

We were on vacation with family of seven people, ages ranging from 17 to 75. This adventure was an awesome experience. We got on a ferry (that was fun) then we took a short ride on a bus to meet up with the "mules". The weather was exceptional so that really enhanced our experience. We were in wilderness, beautiful views,waterfalls... More

This was by far one of the best opportunities we had to be out in the wilderness, and with such experienced guides! John and Ruth were incredibly knowledgable, and made the trip so enjoyable. Christie prepared the most amazing meal for us on our way back down the mountain, with spectacular views and a great chance at seeing the local... More
